Set on the remote island of Inishmaan off the west coast of Ireland, word arrives that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighboring island of Inishmore. The Cripple of Inishmaan tells the story of Cripple Billy, the one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody, if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life.
The creative team for The Cripple of Inishmaan includes set and costume designer Christopher Oram, lighting designer Paule Constable, and composer and sound designer Alex Baranowski.
